¥80,000 equals US$584.37.

Parents can just get months of baby food and accessories.

Kinda cheap, ain't it?

I lost another TV friend from childhood.

Months ago, we lost "Luis", today we lost "Bob".

As one of the original "Street regulars", Bob's songs and personality made me smile when I watch the show.

RIP

Posted in: App developed to automatically delete children's nude selfies See in context

Perhaps removing child porno magazines and innapropriate anime from every convenience store in Japan might be intelligent move first.

They're already gone! They disappeared from the magazinge racks of all of Japan's convenience stores before the 2020 Olympics to give Tokyo a "family-friendly" face!

Plus, removing all the ecchi Anime will only anger Japan's Otaku further!

What about the nude selfies of consenting adults? Will the app erase them, too?

Posted in: Japan aims to block sex offenders from jobs in schools, child care See in context

The system "could lead to the offender becoming a social outcast," GOOD!!

NOT GOOD!!

A sex offender being made a social outcast (pariah) may go through negative changes of behaviour and could even become aggressive, more dangerous and even resort to far worse acts of violence (i.e.: Robbery, Murder, Terrorism)!

Rehabilitation is far better than ostracism!

Posted in: Japan must co-exist with virus while achieving growth, says minister See in context

“We know infectious diseases aren’t going away ever,” Daishiro Yamagiwa said Wednesday at the Japan National Press Club in Tokyo. “Co-existing with them while revitalizing the economy toward growth is our job,” he said.

What is he? NUTS!?

COVID is a viral disease! It makes you sick! It could even KILL YOU!

Posted in: Tokyo changes age limit for kids going into opposite sex’s bath at hot springs and sento See in context

As the new policy went into effect, some parents at a public bath in Tokyo’s Higashikurume district weren’t happy about the stricter rules, as shown in the video below. A father who came with his three children, two sons and an eight-year-old daughter, was disappointed that the group won’t all be able to go into the bath together, as was the girl herself.

Some parents who are opposed to this can just go to public baths outside Tokyo!

We need to bring back corporal punishment for cases like this to deter other cowards from thinking this is a good way to end their lives.

How will corporal punishment stop these jerks? They probably been beaten, slapped, whipped, etc. when they were youngsters! Violence will only produce more violence!

Parents in ALL THE WORLD need to keep a more watchful eye on their children.

Kentarogaijin is RIGHT! This horrible thing happens EVERYWHERE, even where I live!

Posted in: Man arrested for molesting boy in game center toilet See in context

Parents, in Japan particularly, need to keep a more watchful eye on their children.

"..In Japan particularly"?

This sort of thing is a WORLDWIDE problem! It happens in the U.S. where I live, in the U.K, Canada,

Africa, even in the Vatican!

It even happens where YOU live, too.

So before you start blaming other countries for problems like this, think about YOUR country's problems first!

Good for Mrs. Kimura to bring those creeps to civil justice so that her dear Hana can soon rest in peace.

JUSTICE FOR HANA!!

Posted in: Ishihara wants Tokyo to bid for 2020 Olympics See in context

Hasn't he learned his lesson from the last time he did this?

Besides, now is not the appropriate time to prepare the country for the Olympic Games. The nation is still healing from the double disasters.

The Olympics money held by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government should be used for sheltering the homeless and non-nuclear electricity projects before they can they host the Olympic Games---if Tokyo win, of course.

Given Ishihara's character, the IOC might pass on Tokyo again. Unless he resigns in a year or two or pass away, given his age.
